Jacaranda House Case Study

Xact Accounting House of the Year Award & ABI Interiors Individual Home over $3 million Award 2023 for Corella Construction


The clients desired a residence that captured the Hamptons and New England regions' timeless charm and coastal elegance. Invilla, known for adapting international design styles to local contexts, created a design concept that fused the clients' aspirations with the unique characteristics of the Brisbane area. The goal was to capture the essence of the Hamptons/New England style while harmonising with the subtropical climate and vibrant surroundings.


The clients had a vision of blending timeless design elements into their project. By integrating authentic shingle cladding and tiles sourced from America, the design pays homage to a rich heritage. The house cleverly maximises the width of the block to take full advantage of the stunning riverfront view.

Designing an authentic Hamptons/New England-style Brisbane home presented challenges requiring innovative solutions. Striking the right balance between traditional elements and sustainability was a primary challenge. Invilla navigated local building regulations while preserving the authenticity of the design.


Approaching the residence, a sense of grandeur and exclusivity fills the air. A private driveway leads past the tennis court and pavilion, guiding visitors toward the awe-inspiring 57-meter wide facade. Dorma windows, extended patios, and glazed gable ends create a balanced array, framing the property's Jacaranda trees and capturing the allure of the Hamptons and New England style in Brisbane.

Upon entering through the pastel-blue double doors, guests are greeted by a double-height pitched ceiling adorned with a glass chandelier. A captivating feature garden is framed by a colossal picture window, offering a view of the pool and river beyond.

Exploring further, the house reveals a quad garage, laundry and mudroom, guest bedrooms, a bunk room, and children's rooms. The staircase leads to an office and guest suite on the upper level.

The heart of the home features formal dining, open-plan living, and a kitchen with a breakfast nook. An exposed rafter ceiling, VJ ceilings, and intricate joinery lend an air of timeless elegance. The kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, showcasing a commitment to excellence.

The residence seamlessly accommodates casual and formal living areas, featuring a fireplace and a vast alfresco space with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. An 18-meter-long pool and lush lawns leading to the river create a picturesque oasis.

The master bedroom includes a walk-in robe, nursery room, and en-suite with a Victoria and Albert bath offering views of the Jacarandas. Additional spaces include a rumpus room, bar, and cinema area for immersive entertainment. The subterranean level offers a gym, sauna, and an external ice bath for wellness and rejuvenation.



The successful execution of the project resulted in a stunning Hamptons/New England-style home in Brisbane. The residence exemplifies Invilla's ability to translate international design influences into unique, contextually appropriate solutions. It showcases a blend of timeless design elements and contemporary functionality.

The elegant gabled roofs, crisp white accents, and large windows create an inviting facade that stands out within the local context. The interior spaces balance classic charm and modern amenities, providing a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing living environment.

The realisation of the client's vision reaffirms Invilla's commitment to delivering exceptional experiences that resonate with their desires and aspirations.
